That's MISTER old fart to you!

Another weekend is here already, time is flying and I really do need to make a start on my Christmas cards. The good news is that I found a dress and I actually like it which is amazing for me and it was only the 17th one I tried on....

Anyway, this is a male Birthday card and I absolutely love this digital image which goes so well with the slogan. I had already coloured in the image with Promarkers so had to build the backing paper colours up around the image which I didn't find very easy. Usually I put the backing papers together first and then colour the image to match.

Apart from that I just kept the design very simple.

Hope you all have a productive crafty weekend x
